BSkyB bid row: Lib Dems to abstain in Hunt vote

Lib Dem MPs are to abstain in a Commons vote calling for an investigation into whether Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt broke the ministerial code.

Labour wants his handling of News Corp's BSkyB bid examined by David Cameron's adviser on ministerial interests.

The BBC's Nick Robinson said Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg told a meeting of his MPs and peers not to "support the Tories on this one" and "to stay away".
